l, can be varied to right or left to suit various sizes of work,
to alter the depth of cut. The wheel head is further balanced
by the weight N connected to G by a chain over pullies p p, and
the pulley bracket Q can be adjusted horizontally for changed
position of the saddle. The emery wheel drive from the counter-
shaft is by pulleys r and Y, thence over guide drum q to cones z
arid a, which rotate the drum , and therefore also the wheel
spindle : the lever j serving to tighten the belt z a, and by
tinslacking permit a change of speed to the second step of the
cone. The spur wheels at R are driven from the main cones, and
in turn rotate the cones s and T. This motion is conveyed by
the bevel gear f9 g, and b to the vertical shaft u u, thence through
worm gear at v, and spur pinion oh the shaft w, to a rack upon the
sliding head G, thus causing the vertical traverse. At each rise or
fall of G one of the tappets Y Y strikes the lever/, which puts in
clutch one or other of the bevel wheels at <, thus reversing the
traverse, and the quick and certain throw-over is ensured by the
action of the spring lever d. The worm gear at k, being turned
by hand through a micrometer wheel m, rotates the saddle screw /,
a.nd thus advances the cut: and the lever d puts the bevel wheels
3E out of gear, and thus stops the table rotation when required.
The lever n similarly disconnects the bevels b to permit of hand
traverse by the wheel h.

A combined Internal and Surface Grinding Machine has been
further given in Fig. 938 because of its interest.    The machine is
not large, but is extremely .useful for a number of tool-room
jobs.    On the bed A are three heads, B carrying the work in a
chuck w, while H is the surfacing and D the internal grinding
slide.   The wheel G is driven by pulley F from the first counter-
shaft D, which also drives the mandrel wheel M ; but the small
wheel Q and extra countershaft p are provided for the high speed
required, the train being B to P, Q to R.    The slide H traverses
across, and slide D with the mandrel, both motions occurring,
backward and forward, simultaneously if required ; but the sur-
facing slide only can be stopped (by lever j) while the machine is
in. action.   The traverse motion is obtained through pullies D
and K to three bevel wheels within the bed, as in the previously
described machines, and the reverse is effected by tappets on D
